County/ Municipalities Seek Reimbursement Following Presidential Disaster Declaration

Officials with FEMA and GEMA are expected to visit Carroll County and municipalities this week to review requests for financial re-imbursement after last month’s severe winter weather.
Carroll is one of several counties that can get some money back after a presidential disaster declaration. The county and cities could get back around 75-percent of the money spent clearing debris from right-of-ways; and work done in preparing for the storm and during.
Carroll County has had 12 presidential disaster declarations since 1990, allowing to re-coup some of the money spent during a disaster. That’s the most in the state during that period, according to EMA Director Tim Padgett.
